About me

My aim is to help you overcome the difficulties that are holding you back and make sense of difficult emotions and thoughts. We've all been there: feeling down, angry, lost, or fearful because of work, relationships, anxieties, or the future of the planet - I will listen to your story. You don't have to be in crisis or have a specific reason for unhappiness: people often come to therapy for insights or a better perspective.

Give me a ring or send me a message. I will be happy to answer questions or arrange an informal chat, free of charge.

I offer face to face sessions, and both of my offices are sufficiently spacious to maintain a 3-m distance between therapist and client. I also offer online and outdoor sessions ('Walk & Talk' therapy).

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a down-to-earth psychotherapist with a flexible approach, combining person-centred principles with solution-orientated cognitive-behavioural techniques. I use a range of evidence-based tools to suit your personality and circumstances.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
